political environment. but at the same time, you spent years as the democratic party chair, in some ways, being the partisan chief of the party. what would you say to virginians that would convince them that when you go to washington, you'd be not partisan and not simply a loyal lieutenant in harry reid's army. >> i will tell you two things. i served with two presidents. i serve with president bush and president obama. we did not agree on everything. i worked closely on the bush administration on a number of issues that put virginia first. railroads are being built right now largely because of president bush and his secretary of transportation and our ability to work together. we worked with the bush administration in the aftermath of the shootings at virginia tech. i will always be a partner of the nine states, whoever the president is. i also have a track record of working across lines. first, here in richmond. second, as a republican -- as a governor with republican houses. we were the best-managed state in virginia. revested for business all years i was governor, forbes magazine. tho

in the economic environment, is the fundamental reason that central planning cannot work, even apart from the adverse implications of central planning for individual freedom. we use market institutions to allocate resources because doing so maximizes aggregate wealth. we don't use market institutions to allocate and reallocate resources in order to preserve jobs in any given industry. therefore, the structural unemployment that results from reductions in defense outlays is irrelevant and politically, even if it is highly relevant politically. to the extent that reductions in defense outlays reflect an improvement in international security environments, that improvement in yields an increase in national wealth in exactly the same sense that a reduction in crime does the same. while increased employment in a given economic sector or increased unemployment, rather, in a given economic sector is painful for those subjected to economic losses, it is not a loss for the economy as a whole, because the reallocation of resources in response to changes in relative prices increases the aggregate pro

hall debates. environments can be relatable. mitt romney's achilles heel. >> governor, stick around, you are not done. >> i will give you a few more minutes. >> when vice president joe biden admitted well, sort of, that yes, there is a mask tax hike coming your way courtesy of him. you know the phrase we always use, obama and biden want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars. guess what? yes we do. >> he corrected for that afterwards. but we do want to talk about the gaffe plus whether the mainstream media is giving the v.p. a pass. >> then the ultimatum one employer just gave. get your flu shot or you are out of here. you will be fired if you don't have the flu shot. does that sound fair? we report, you decide after the break. >> mitt romney really on the offensive the other night. he made statements that i think damaged president obama's credibility almost like he was he joe biden. you could feel it bob, these projections... they're... optimistic. productivity up, costs down, time to market reduced... those are good things. upstairs, they will see fantasy. not fantasy... logistics.

let's go ahead and release that earlier. it will have a negligible effect on the environment and hopefully the supply situation. also refineries here, some going back on-line, helping -- they're getting repaired. so we should see relief sometime soon. most experts say we'll see that relief coming slow, that we haven't reached the peak as of yet. but over the next couple of weeks, perhaps by thanksgiving, we could see prices on the decline. but for now, looks like we might be dealing with pry high prices here. >> steve: how many refineries are off line right now, causing the spike? >> there are a number of big ones. one in northern california where there was a fire last -- we only have 14 refineries here in california. so if you have just a couple, like five of them off line, then we could see certainly a spike here in the gas. the real big issue is that regulation, the california regulation that wouldn't allow any of these oil companies to release that winter blend. so now that they can release the winter blend, we could see relief. >> gretchen: thanks very much for that upda
